Powerball Ticket Worth Millions Sold in Iowa

CREATED Mar. 24, 2013

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) - No one in Iowa won Powerball's $338.3 million jackpot this weekend, but a winning ticket worth $2 million was sold in Oskaloosa.

Iowa lottery officials say the $2 million winning ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball. The ticket was worth $2 million because the buyer purchased a power play option to double the prize.

Shelby Sharp, who works at the Kum & Go that sold the winner, said Sunday morning that no one had contacted the store about claiming their winnings yet.

Four other tickets sold in Iowa are worth $10,000 because they matched four numbers. Those were sold in Council Bluffs, Donnellson, Davenport and Des Moines.

The overall jackpot-winning ticket was sold in New Jersey. The winning numbers were 17-29-31-52-53 and Powerball 31.
